Cloud 10 Pics Releases ‘Dangerous Calling’ straight to DVD
February 9, 2010. Well-reviewed and with a passionate fan base, Cloud Ten Pictures’ latest release, DANGEROUS CALLING, is bound to stir up controversy.
“DANGEROUS CALLING is going to shake things up,” declares Cloud Ten’s CEO, André van Heerden. Cloud Ten Pictures Inc., has made a name for itself with its end-times dramas, the Left Behind movies and theApocalypse Series.
DANGEROUS CALLING, debuting on February 8, 2010, marks the indie production/distribution house’s first foray into the Suspense/Thriller genre. “It’s not everyday you come across a truly scary Christian film,” notes Paul Lalonde, the company’s owner and chairman.
“DANGEROUS CALLING may raise some eyebrows, but we’re proud to be distributing it.”
Initially unsure how audiences might respond to the thriller, van Heerden waited for reactions from its premiere screening at the 2008 Rome (Georgia) International Film Festival, before approaching the producers about distributing the title. The audience loved it, awarding it the Audience Choice Award for Best Feature. Since acquiring the film, Cloud Ten Pictures has received a full spectrum of responses; and is warning that the film is definitely not for children or for the faint of heart.
With a nod to films like PSYCHO and MISERY, DANGEROUS CALLING is not your typical ‘church movie.’ A new pastor in a small-town church stands up to a few controlling church members who oppose his new ideas for reaching the youth of the community, and he and his wife face dire consequences. Despite being set in a small-town church community, DANGEROUS CALLING doesn’t hold back on the chills, with genuinely ‘watch-through-your-fingers’ suspense.
DANGEROUS CALLING is the first feature film from writers/directors brother Josh and Jeremiah Daws. The Daws brothers drew on influences from their own lives in creating this intense thriller that addresses the issue of small-town church politics from a modern perspective. “Our primary goal was to tell an entertaining story, but the movie has an important message for the church,” explains Jeremiah. In order to see the message, however, you have to be brave enough to watch the film.
DANGEROUS CALLING releases on DVD nationwide February 8, 2010 and is available for church exhibition through Cloud Ten’s Church Cinema (although recommended only for older teens and adults). DANGEROUS CALLING will be distributed domestically on DVD to the secular and Christian markets through E1 Entertainment (www.e1distribution.com), and to all other markets directly by Cloud Ten Pictures.
